To mark the sixtieth anniversary of the end of WWII in Europe, CSA WORD is proud to release a brand new CD of over 100 poems written by men and women who served during the war.
A formidable and unique legacy, this striking collection of poems and voices, framed by helpful narration, evokes the atmosphere and feelings of war in all its aspects: the pain, passion, fear, loneliness, anger and some unexpected humour too.
Denis Healey aptly describes the compilation as 'history with a thousand eyes'. Contributions come from all over the world, reflecting the vast scale and wide-reaching impact of war. Contributors include Dirk Bogarde, Michael Thwaites from Australia, Uys Krige, the reporter poet from South Africa, les Cleveland from New Zealand, the Gaelic poet Sorley Maclean, Quintin Hogg and many more.
Sensitively read by a cast of actors, comedians, singers and politicians, The Best of Second World War Poetry is a must for poetry lovers and the understanding of the war; to be shared and treasured for many generations to come.
